LIFE CREW BOARDS WRECK

T gether By Carjfo, But Cau
Not Last Long Other
It was ascertained yesterday that
there are nobodies on the til-fated
schooner Frank ,W Howe. . Weather
Observed Kelliher stationed at North
Head lighthouse, yesterday sent a man
to the scene of the disaster, and the
messenger secured full" Information re
garding the matter. Observer Kelll
her made the following statement last
evening: , ' ,
"Iff messenger went to the scene of
the wreck of the Howe this afternoon.
He reports that the Fort Canby 'life
saving crew today boarded the schoon
er and made thorough search for the
purpose of determining whether or not
the bodies of the two men killed -last
Thursday were aboard. . The crew
found no trace of them.
"The masts of the schooner are now
working loose and will go by the board
in a short time. The vessel has brok
en In two and only the cargo of ties
Is holding the two portions together. I
am Informed that the schooner will en
tirely break up within the next SS
hours, as the cargo tn the hold is be
ginning to work loose and will soon be
carried away by the waves." '
There were three Insurance risks on
the wrecked schooner, in all amounting
to about $30,000. An adjuster who vis
ited the scene of the wreck expressed
the opinion that perhaps the vessel
could be saved, but latest reports from
the beach are that she Is to be a total
l9ss.' '.'''" ' 1
The gale which threatened Tuesday
night did not materialise, and ast
evening Weather Observer ElUs report
ed that Indications for fair weather
were better last night than on the
previous night. The observer says
there will be no storm at least for U
hours. The bar was quiet yesterday
and several vessels arrived and several
departed. The Oregon got out after
a detention of several dajs, but the
transport Wx is still weather bound.
The Dix will likely remain in the tar
tor until Saturday, when the tides will
. CHINOOK HAS FULL CREW.
Strikers Who Want to Return Are Not
Given the Opportunity. "
The statement was made yesterday
by a member of the crew of the bar
dredge Chinook that the crew had
been completed, and that there was
no further vacancies to be filled. The
new men secured for duty are nearly
all residents of ths city, who will not
be so apt to quit the ship upon ac
cumulating a few dollars. Sixteen of
the men who struck wanted to return
to the ship, but the officers In charge
of the launch has recleved Instructions
not to take any of the strikers aboard.
There were at one time 120 men at
the wharf waiting to go aboard to
make application for positions. Most
of the strikers who have applied for
reinstatement are now "bust" and re
pentent. It Is understood that Chief Engln
mt Jnhn Undlev has been transfer
rer uj me engineer ueji uu -
of the transports, and that First As
sistant John Moorhof had- been made
chief. The first assistant has Just re
turned from a San Francisco visit
of two weeks. This change in the
engine room will doubtless have a har
monizing effect, as there has been
some friction 'between the captain and
The chief cook has quit his position
and there are now but two cooks
aboard . It U reported that the cull
nary department Is not as strong as
It should be, and that the work cut
out for the men In that department Is
more than they can properly attend
to. However, this difficulty will be
adjusted ere long.
Yesterday the Chinook took on 600
